No-one is stopping him, he’s legitimately going mad (madder?) with power. Crash Bandicoot is the number one video game in the UK charts, and will likely remain so until some mainstream AAA release attempts to shove him of.
In other chart news Splatoon 2 appears to have hit its peak, dropping out of the top five, whilst the current in-store Bethesda promotion continues to push Doom, Dishonored 2 and Fallout 4 higher up the Top Ten. Grand Theft Auto V sits comfortably in second place.
Bro-shooters rejoice as Rainbow Six: Siege and Battlefield 1 both made re-entries. Clearly it was a very solid week for gamers who like looking down the barrel of a gun, son of a gun.
As for the marsupial monarch, he’ll likely find himself ruling the roost until the release of Uncharted: The Lost Legacy, which feels like the next game with the most mainstream potential to threaten his throne.
